Timothy Morton: Philosophy is design is philosophy (March 14, 2016)01:13:02

Timothy Morton argues against epistimism, the anthropocentric over-valuation of thought, and as an alternative proposes ecological awareness, approaching the world through a variety of different temporal and spatial scales. He critiques the syndrome of agrilogistics, a set of axioms that arbitrarily impose a ban on logical contradiction, the equation of existence with presence, and the valuing of existing over any quality of existing. Morton maintains that "design is philosophy to the extent that designed things subtend the design and the designer."
